One of the most exciting experiences for teenagers is reaching the age when you are finally able to drive. Sitting in the driver’s seat behind the wheel inspires an immediate sense of freedom, as though the world has expanded and the many roads have become a new sort of playground to explore. But with this freedom comes many risks, for operating a vehicle is no small undertaking and requires serious focus and responsibility.
If you are a new driver, there are several habits that you can develop early on which will make you a safer driver and avoid careless accidents. Parents should encourage these habits as soon their child begins practicing driving. Some helpful driving tips include:
· Put down the cell phone to avoid texting while driving
· Always buckle your seatbelt as soon as you get in the car
· Never drink and drive
· Pay attention to the weather, especially when first taking to the road
· During your first few months of driving, limit passengers
